random stuff • Greenville, sc baby photographer

I've been bad at blogging regularly. My apologies to the few people who may read this;). I have good reasons (this, this, this, and this) and I'm enjoying them!

I got to take some really fun pictures lately...If you recognize the boy below, please don't mention it to his mom...The pictures are a surprise for her birthday...Good idea, dad!






He was the friendliest baby I've ever met!

Reece is a regular on my blog...If you look back over posts you can see her growing up..pretty cool.











Reece did awesome for our shoot! I've been worn out after shooting kids on the move. It's tough to get the shots you want, but I'm so happy with how they turned out.

...and I also did some pics for my sister-in-law who will be in the Miss South Carolina Pageant this summer. This is the crown shot she chose...


I love springtime. The best part about it is the beautiful blooming trees and flowers. It is hands down my favorite thing to photograph. I think my dream job would be a nature photographer, maybe national geographic;) When I photograph nature, I always look at it as design..mostly for interior design...Like the picture below, I was thinking blowing it up on canvas for a living, dining, or bedroom.


I have a whole series of these that I'll post soon.

Have a good Thursday!

Brennan & Georgia • Greenville, sc baby photographer

Before Brennan had his first birthday, everyone celebrated early. Brennan received a new heart and it was successfully transplanted in December. He is now able to grow up at home instead of being in the hospital day in and day out. Such a blessing for this little guy and his family! Here are some shots from his Elmo birthday party.









In other news, I am a new mother to a sweet baby girl named Georgia!


We were on our way to the Masters very early Sunday morning. We were about 10 miles from the course when we came upon a black puppy in the road. We slowed to wait for it to move, but she just laid down in the road. We pulled over and that's when she stole my heart;). She was so scared and looked hurt, but we found out later it was just from being timid. We put her in the car but had no idea what we were going to do with her while we were at the Masters. Leaving her in the car on a hot day for a good 6 hours was not an option. So I began looking for fences while we drove. If we could find a fence to leave her in, we could pick her up on the way home. Lucky for us, we came to a Sunshine House daycare with a fenced in playground. There were large gaps in a lot of places in the fence but it was our only option. So we dropped her off and I just knew she was going to escape and make a run for it. When we left the golf course my stomach was in knots with anticipation. I just knew she was going to be gone and I would be left feeling guilty for leaving her and worried about her safety. When we drove up I expected to get out and look around for awhile until I'd have to accept that she was gone, but then Jack said "there she is"...I looked and didn't see her and got mad at him for joking about it! But then I saw her! She was exactly where we left her! So, we have a new addition to our family. Jack named her Georgia, obviously because we found her there. She's fighting some hook and round worm, but other than that she's pretty healthy. We think she's mostly lab with maybe some pitbull in her. We're crate training right now so pray we get some sleep and be expecting lots more pics of this one with her big bro Benson.
